let's just take the loss, as it is...a loss. We'll never know what may have been. Let's have the dignity that Serena (and Venus for that matter) have.

I'm sorry but why shouldn't fans of Serena be mad?

If this had happened to Jen, who would be telling Jen fans just take the loss? Serena would have been attacked and let's say she had responded the way Jen did, it would be Serena the two faced liar right about now.

Williams robbed of point in loss to Capriati

NEW YORK (AP) - Unfairly, unbelievably, Serena Williams was robbed of a point by an umpire's mistake at the U.S. Open, just like her sister was at Wimbledon.

It happened in the opening game of the third set between Williams and Jennifer Capriati, who went on to win their Open quarterfinal 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 Tuesday night.
The match was tight and testy, the way it almost always has been during the 17 matches between Williams and Capriati: contested calls, spiked rackets, a bit of gamesmanship and strokes pounded with power. A lot of power.

But what always will be remembered is the miscue by chair umpire Mariana Alves of Portugal, who gave a point to Capriati at deuce after Williams hit a backhand that clearly landed in - and was ruled good by the line judge.

Williams wound up being broken in that game, and though she did break right back, she was broken again to 2-1 and never recovered. TV replays also appeared to show at least two other incorrect calls that went against Williams in the final game, when Capriati needed three match points to serve it out.

"I didn't even, like, look at it. It was close. I was just going to what the umpire said," Capriati told the crowd afterward, receiving some boos.

"Believe me, I've had things go against me many times, plenty of times. I deserve to get a call once in a while."

Exactly I agree, woulda coulda shoulda....I think moreso Serena was probably emotionally drained b/c of the calls ie she could have turned it around. Unfornutaly she wasn't able to in this instance....too bad she couldn't close it out in 2. :-(

I've calmed down and I understand that sometimes integrity, honesty, and class can go a lot farther than a win in a quarterfinal match in which the player who won probably won't win the tournement. Regardless of this deception Serena looked really sharp in the first set and that encourages me that she is finally healthy and will be able to finish off the year on a positive note.

By midnight, these folks will have put a spin on this situation and make it seem as if Serena is responsible for everything from the NBA's poor showing in the Olympics to the swelling federal deficit.:lol:
